November 11 - Remembering Flanders Fields in Belgium

Even the little ones were here on field trips and they listened patiently as their teachers explained about the battles and the many, many soldiers who died.


I visited the In Flanders Fields Museum in Ypres. Their permanent exhibition holds an immense amount of information. There are excellent films, computer programs, photos and hundreds of pieces of war memorabilia. Though I was there for close to two hours it still wasn't enough time to see everything. One leaves with a very heavy heart. Website: www.inflandersfields.be/en


   

At the Knowledge Centre of the In Flanders Fields Museum I requested information about the women who served as nurses in The Great War. These are the books I was shown.


Every evening since 1928, the Last Post is played at 8 o'clock sharp under the Menin Gate Memorial in Ieper. This is the traditional final salute to the fallen performed by the buglers from the local fire brigade. By the time I arrived hundreds of people were already assembled and waiting for the ceremony to begin. Website: www.lastpost.be


I was honoured to meet this man whose father originally played taps each night. Now it is he who follows in his father's footsteps.


Before I leave I, along with all the other towns people and tourists, pay my respects to the fallen. Lest we forget...
